Earlier this year, International Wine Center had the pleasure of hosting a celebration at the school with instructors and staff in honor of our hard-working and talented WSET Diploma Graduates.

Over the past two years, 26 new graduates have joined an esteemed group of 387 students who previously earned their WSET Diploma through study with IWC. Academically rigorous, the WSET Level 4 Diploma is a high-level, internationally recognized wine credential. The two-year program is one of the most demanding and challenging courses of wine study offered in the world and fulfills one of the prerequisites for entry into the rigorous Master of Wine program.

“Honoring our grads is a true pleasure for all of us at International Wine Center. The hard work by the grads validates our daily efforts to exceed the highest standards of wine education,” commented IWC President Mary Ewing-Mulligan, MW.

The 26th International Wine Center graduating class from 2022 includes Javier Berberena, Christina Bucci Vanderveer (pictured below), Raymond Bugarin, Xingyu Chen (pictured below), Elizabeth Comatos, Georgina Davila, Kimberly Delvizis (pictured below), Megan Kratky, Jihyun Lee, Nikos Mavreas (pictured below), Caitlin Miller, Kimberly Minarovich (pictured below), AJ Ojeda-Pons, Andre Rossi, Alexandra Schrecengost, Kai Sheng, and (pictured below), Sarah Sutel-Looper.

The 27th graduating class from 2023includes Carol Cohen, Chris Masters, Monika Mrakavova, Vivien Naim (pictured above), Emily Rosenberg, Sarah Sparks, Mengyu Sun (pictured above), Amanda Torcivia, and Evan White.

Founded in 1982, IWC is recognized as one of the most established, reputable, and prestigious wine and spirits educational centers in the country and was the first school to introduce WSET programming to the U.S. more 30 years ago. 29 percent of the 58 Masters of Wine (MWs) resident in the U.S. have studied at International Wine Center. IWC Instructors all hold the WSET Level 4 Diploma in Wines & Spirits, and several are MWs as well.

Cheers to all of our esteemed graduates – we look forward to watching your continued journey in wine!
